Spartan Challenge Holds Strong Field

This weekend's Spartan Challenge Invitational should be another strong showing. At last year's meet, the Johnston girls started to gain traction as the strongest female team in Iowa after finishing close behind Edina and Naperville North, two strong powerhouses from Minnesota and Illinois, respectively. With their appearance again this year, many are looking to see how they can stand up after many injuries over the spring and summer months. Senior Jessica McKee will be looking to take the individual win this year after a close 3rd place finish last year.
With Patrick Bose and Alex Batista graduating, plus Nicholas Yanek leaving Iowa, it will be interesting to see if another Iowa athlete can step up and take the individual win this year over the strong Edina team in the boys race. Pleasant Valley will have to make up for the loss of Yanek to try and take the win over Edina this year after taking 2nd to them last year.

Take a look back at the varsity results from last year's meet to prepare for the big day!
